There’s been a construction boom lately in the ski lift industry, which means Peter Landsman has been booking a lot of flights.
Landsman, the undisputed authority on all things chairlifts, runs the LiftBlog.com website, a labor of love he attends to when not working his full-time job as — you guessed it — a lift supervisor at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming. He set up his LiftBlog site in 2015 for about $200 and still does all the work himself.
Remarkably, Landsman has visited and ridden every lift in the country — some 2,381 at about 480 resorts — over the course of 22 years.
In addition to documenting every lift at every resort in the United States and Canada, he tracks and shares lift industry news. Last December, his site attracted 200,000 unique visitors and 610,000 page views.
